You need to set up a VPN (Virtual Private Network) if you want to be able to connect to your office machines from home. Contact your IT administrator.

The easiest would be to configure the router/firewall at your office to allow incoming VPN connection from your home address. It is pretty self explanatory how to set this up on most SOHO routers. I would recommend you take a look at the manual for more detailed instructions.
